Item Description:
Original typed letter written and signed by the ex-president of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt on January 25,1937. The letter is written in response to famous New York Times sports journalist, James P. Dawson.

James P. Dawson was a sports writer and columnist for the New York Times. He began what would eventually become a 44-year career as a copy boy in 1908, eventually becoming the Times Boxing Editor in 1915. From 1919 on he covered every major boxing event held in New York City. He was a founding member of the New York Boxing Writers Association in 1936, where he served as its first Vice-President. He was also a member of the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers Association, serving as President in 1936 and 1937. Dawson, who covered all three New York baseball teams, died from a heart attack while covering the Yankees in St. Petersburg, Florida, during spring training in 1953. The annual James P. Dawson award is presented annually to the top rookie in the Yankees' training camp.
